My question involves a security deposit in the State of: Virginia
After renting my home for the past year and making a significant initial security deposit, I received paperwork for renewing my lease for another year which informed me that I must provide an additional security deposit of $1000. This letter was dated one month ago (yet I only received it by mail today) and asks that I return it with the additional deposit at the end of THIS month, in 20 days. Is this legal? I have never heard of essentially forcing a tenent to pay another security deposit simply to renew a lease in which nothing has changed.
